A Christmas to remember | Chilliwack Photographer

For awhile now I have been thinking about how I can give back to my community. I often gift many families who have children with life altering disabilities or diseases through The Tiny Light Foundation, but there are so many other people out there who are so deserving of creating and capturing thier own memories who simply can not afford. Lets face it photography is more of a luxury that not everyone can afford. I want to give a gift of photography to a deserving family… I will be gifting not only one session but 3 during the year of 2012.

Please help me by spreading the word…
To apply or to nominate a family please send me an email, tell me a story of why you or why the family you know is deserving of this gift of memories.
All three gifted sessions will include a family session, a 4×6 album, 4 sheets of prints and a 11×14 wall art. Each family will walk away with a great memories not only to hang on their wall, but to talk about for years to come.

I look forward to meeting these deserving families!

    My brother has a severely autistic deaf son. He is a single dad with 2 daughters and 1 grandson. There is no way he could afford a family photo and he lives in Chilliwack. I would love so much to beable to give them a chance of having one does because they have never had one. He is such an amazing dad raising all those kids in his small appartment on his own. But he does it and he loves it. Thank you Carolyn

    Hi there,

    I know that my family could not afford professional photos. We are a low income family and just had our first child in September. I currently attend UFV and have to go back to school when my son is just 3 months old because of my student loan. Leaving him is going to be one of the hardest things that I have ever had to do. I think that a family photo shoot would help us feel that even though we are apart , we are still a family and that everything we are going through now is so that our children can have everything that they need later on in life.

    I just keep thinking to myself that its better to struggle for a few years when we are younger then to struggle for the rest of our lives. lol.

    Thanks for the chance to enter your contest, and good luck choosing the winners :)

    Times are tough this year and I can’t say we’re the only family who are facing financial strain. My workplaces’ sales seem to ebb and flow with the season (we’re in Agassiz) so when fall and winter hit our hours take a dive. I’ve wanted to get family portraits done for some time now and honestly can’t afford it time after time. Usually unexpected bills get in the way and we know we need to make sure there’s a roof over our head, heat/power/water for the house and food in our kids bellies. I really appreciate the opportunity to enter to win one of your gifted sessions. I know this would be a gift that our family would appreciate so very much. I’d love to share this with my mom and gma as I know they’d treasure the photos as would we.

    <3 Thanks,
    The Legere/Shannon Family…

  4. This Christmas, is going to be our daughter’s first as she will be 9 months in a few days. My husband lost his job, and we cant afford anything this year…It just doesn’t feel like Christmas this year for me(but I want to make it as special as I can for our daughter).
    Thank you, Julie
